Cape Town: September 1997

Four generations of choreographic talent contribute - the multi-award winning creative team Val Steyn, Alfred Hinkel, Debbie Goodman and Geli Shubert plus Sifiso Kweyama and Ashley Abrahams bring their distinctive styles to the stage. Music by Maurice Ravel, Hugh Masekela and René Avenant, who was responsible for the music for Jazzart's award-winning 1997 production, Junction.

"The eight works in Four tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the Jazzart signatures and the mission statement. Common threads in all the choreography spanning two decades are contact improvisation, collaboration, relationships across gender and race, a search for identity and a thirst for individuality and invention."
